for design professionals
23-25 January 2007
In January 2007, the Department of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester will host a Design MasterClass by Architect and Exhibit Designer Lee H. Skolnick, FAIA, Founding Principal of Lee H. Skolnick Architecture + Design Partnership in New York.
The class will offer a forum for the sharing of ideas and will bring together leaders in the field for a series of lectures and group discussions around the topic of "Design as Interpretation".
The focus of the 3-day MasterClass will be a design 'charette' wherein participants work directly with Lee in groups on exhibit 'interventions'which explore the potential for interpreting content and concepts through design, using locations within the University campus as project 'sites'. Issues of audience definition, conceptual framework, narrative, procession and circulation, design vocabulary, materiality, interactivity, graphics, lighting, and media will be examined in relation to their potential to contribute the creation of truly interpretive visitor experiences.
